Felt delivers a handwritten note through the mail for you. The company lets you send a handwritten card from your phone or a tablet anytime. You handwrite your message on the screen and then they print, stamp, seal and mail your cards for you.
Tomer's company is a marketplace that allows designers to sell their art through their site. They don't do invitations yet, but you can save addresses so when you want to do Christmas Cards or holidays, you can do them with handwritten notes and addresses.
Felt has over 60,000 downloads with a four and a half star rating. Tomer put all their cash in the company, and they have identified two huge markets. They want to do a bride and professionals.
There is nobody else that lets you write your cards on the screen. Customer acquisition cost is $8 and that is why they focus on brides.
